The White House has yet to confirm an agreement on a government spending budget despite indications that President Donald Trump would sign off on a border deal before Friday's deadline.

Trump told reporters Wednesday that while he had no set plans to agree to the terms of a border deal outlined by Democrats, he also would not rule out an agreement and would take "a very serious look" at the new proposed compromise.

"We’re going to look at the legislation when it comes and I’ll make a determination," Trump said, adding that he would keep an eye out for "landmines."

Despite an unwillingness to provide a solid confirmation, Trump was adamant about dodging another government shutdown, adding that it would be "a terrible thing."

Legislators reportedly have yet to finish the new proposal on border security. There had been speculation that a vote on the border wall could happen Wednesday.

White House officials confirmed that they have not received any text regarding the border deal, according to the Associated Press.

Others have spoken publicly about their predictions on whether Trump will accept the terms of the border deal.

Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina said he thinks "[Trump is] going to sign it,” and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell expressed hope that the legislation would be signed.

The current agreement will set aside a fraction — about $1.4 billion — of Trump's original sum of $5.7 billion for border barriers. At a Cabinet meeting Tuesday, Trump told attendees that he planned to circumvent minimal funding by moving money from other government departments, a move that would face legal challenges.

Trump on Wednesday reiterated that a border wall will be built under his watch.

"The wall is being built as we speak," he told reporters.

"We’re going to have a great wall. It’s going to be a great, powerful wall."
